In December, I dropped and broke our camera and I haven't yet replaced it. Funds are low but I'm looking for a digital camera with video that has some sort of fun tinkery aspect rather than a straight point and shoot. Maybe second-hand. Any advice gratefully received.
Any the how, our summer has gone largely unrecorded and this blog has gotten very wordy. I'm sick of myself. My, kids say the darndest things. Haven't done the washing-up. Ooh my pants fell down! Etc.
So as a little relief, here is a small series of Ivy making dinner in early summer.
Start with your little tomatoes. Eat a few, arrange a few...
Drizzle. For shizzle.
Grating cheese is totally exciting!
Still, sometimes it ends with Band-Aids (the chef's badge o'glory.)
Mix up a few Ribena mocktails.
And dinner is served!
This last photo really makes me laugh. For ages we were all perched around the kids table while the dining table held up some work-in-progress in the corner. Now it's back - no photos, so I can't prove it - but we're sitting around a big persons table like proper grown-ups.
Happy weekend, everybody.
